oh, deejay. >> deejay dp, that's me. >> i like it. got a little soul. i can tell. new york girl, too. >> from queens. >> oh, yes indeed. >> but i was born in philly, i should say. i've got branches. >> all over the northeast. >> yes. i branch out and i show love to be everybody. >> i was actually born in philadelphia as well. grew up in new jersey. first date. >> this is a good one. >> this is a good one. truth was, a little stranger than fiction at super bowl xlvii. this one it is the baltimore ravens who are celebrating victory over the 49ers. they got out to an early really commanding lead in this thing until that unexpected power failure in the dome. >> the niners threatened in the second half, but baltimore was able to hang on. and niners coach jim harbaugh congratulated his brother, ravens coach john harbaugh on
the field. confusing. >> it's been all in the family down there in the dome last night. and that power failure in the superdome looked like it could change the outcome for a while. it all went down early in the third quarter. the scoreboard and some of the lights went dark. there were reports that team intercoms were down, as well. so play stopped for about 34 minutes, making super bowl xlvii the longest ever. it took four hours and 14 minutes to finish. many football fans were not complaining, though. when it's the last game of the year till september, you know. it was good. >> and as late as it was, hundreds of ravens fans still rushed into the streets of baltimore to celebrate their team's victory. pouring out of the bars where they'd been watching the game. they're somewhere dancing along with them. she did announce that the city will hold a parade in honor of its team on tuesday. and wow. look at that. well deserved. but man, that's a lot of people.
>> that's a good -- you can imagine folks are probably still up in baltimore carrying on, acting a fool. as they should. >> you don't think they're watching now? >> if they do, they won't remember it. >> i won't remember tonight. >> it was a good game. it was a good game. >> it was. it was great. >> and congrats to my favorite city, new orleans, always doing a good job in hosting. so enjoy, baltimore. and stay tuned for more from the super bowl, including some post-game analysis and the commercial that cbs did not want you to see. we'll have all the angles covered all morning long right here on abc news. and now to breaking news from southern california, where there's been a deadly bus crash. at least eight people were killed when the bus hit a pickup truck and a car. the accident happened on a rural mountain roadside about 80 miles east of los angeles. dozens of people were treated at the scene or taken to a nearby hospital. the bus was apparently returning to tijuana after a trip to big bear. and the california crash comes less than a day after a bus carrying 42 high school
students and their chaperones slammed into a boston overpass. most of the injured have been released from the hospital, but one person is still in critical condition. the driver claims he was relying on gps at the time of the accident and didn't realize he wasn't supposed to be on that road. we turn to that tragic shooting of a former navy s.e.a.l. and his friend at a texas gun range. the shooting suspect has now been identified as an iraqi war vet named eddie ray routh. he's been held on two counts of capital murder. the "dallas morning news" reports that routh was hit with a stun gun by jail guards yesterday after he refused to return his meal tray. also a tense police standoff is entering day seven in alabama, with a gunman holding a 5-year-old little boy in an underground bunker. jimmy lee dykes is said to be making the child as comfortable as possible, allowing police to send down crackers, even a hot wheels car. we're told that dykes has demanded that a reporter be sent down to speak with him. meanwhile, funeral services were held yesterday for the school bus driver dykes is accused of
shooting. you have to wonder the psyche of that little boy. seven days down there now. no end in sight. and according to some reports, that bunker is well stocked. this could drag on for weeks and weeks. >> the only thing that we worry about is the little boy and that he's being kept as comfortable as possible. that's all we can hope and pray for at this point. and the fact the police are asking us to pray is hard to take. police in turkey are questioning at least 11 suspects in the death of a woman who vanished before she was to return home. 33-year-old sarai sierra suffered a fatal blow to the head. she was seen on surveillance video walking through a mall. detectives are still trying to figure out why her passport and her cell phone were left behind in her hotel room. top leaders of the boy scouts could soon announce a decision on whether to lift a ban on gays. national board meetings begin today in dallas, texas. president obama, who is honorary chairman of the scouts, tells cbs news he is in favor of opening the scouts to all.
>> my attitude is gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does. in every institution and walk of life. >> the president kicks off a major push on gun control later today when he travels to minneapolis police department later today. police in pennsylvania are trying to figure out how a 6-year-old managed to take her mother's car out for a drive. they say the little girl apparently wanted to visit her dad, who lives not too far away. rami hawkins was shoveling snow when he looked up to see the bmw coming right at him. >> i was like, stop, stop, stop. she looked at me and she took back off and she stopped again. and i started running up the hill telling her to stop. she was going and stopping and going and stopping. >> the little girl waited until her mom was sleeping before going on the wild ride. before it was all over she hit three parked cars and a light pole. she was shaken up, but luckily she was not seriously hurt. and the whole deal here is that
her parents are divorced and she wanted to go see daddy. >> as we mentioned at the top of the show, there is a sweet motivation behind the story. dangerous, and it still could have been a lot worse. >> she is okay. >> the fact that she stopped and kept going, stopped and kept going. she realized i shouldn't be doing this. why am i not stopping? she just wanted to go see daddy. snow from the dakotas to chicago. showers from the gulf coast into little rock and memphis and warming up in the southwest. >> near 60 in colorado springs and 72 in phoenix. 20 for much of the northwest. 30s from boston to baltimore. after weeks of controversy, it looks like beyonce has
silenced all not all but most of her critics. >> boom. beyonce's super bowl performance. >> she can put on a show, which my ex-wife did last night. she belted out a string of her hits during the 13-minute half-time set. started with "love on top." she was joined on stage by her destiny child band mates. >> for three and a half seconds and then she booted them off. >> she has always been the star. >> and then she was like, okay, ladies, i got this. >> everyone remembers diana ross, remember the other two supremes? i think not? >> why bring them out for three seconds. have them as her backup singers for three seconds and then boot them out? >> because her coat tails are their best shot at exposure. just saying. >> wow. >> they were never the superstar. beyonce was. and i like the other two. >> wow. >> let's be real, though. it was a good show. in the press conference. and last night.
>> she barley sang the first couple of songs. she had them on there for three seconds and then she booted them off. the ending was weak. she was just laying there. >> you and -- need to start dating. >> because we know what's going on. >> haterade. coming up. the ad cbs did not want you to see during the game last night. >> and super bowl highlights that made this championship go down in the record books. you're watching "world news now." and beyonce's show was not that -- >> love you, b.

and back to our top story now. last night's unforgettable super bowl. joining us now to talk more about the big game is sports radio host jason page. this was a good one and a unique one on a couple of different levels last night. the lights are on here, which is a good sign, i guess. >> expect the unexpected, right? >> and i give you props, man. you called the ravens months ago. you got it right. >> look, this was an outstanding game. the first question you have to ask is where were the 49ers in the first half? >> amen, yes. >> down 21-6 at the half. penalized early in this game. some uncharacteristic mistakes. on their first drive they get a holding penalty, called back a big play. then a big offsides on the ravens' opening drive enables them to get a touchdown instead of what would have potentially been a field goal. and right out of the gate you
could see the 49ers just came out flat in this game. >> yeah. >> everybody's going to point to the play at the end of the game, which we'll get to, but it had a lot more to do with what happened in the first 30 minutes and 12 seconds of this game than it did the final four downs for the 49ers. >> also i think they just dug themselves too big a hole to get out of. they came close at the end but maybe it was a little too little too late? >> yeah. and it's too narrow thinking or too short-sighted to say one play decided this game. it wasn't one play that decided this game. it was many plays in this game that decided it for the 49ers. first of all, start with the 21-6 and you look at what the ravens are doing in this game, up 21-6 right out of halftime you get jacoby jones. who would have seen this coming? 108 yards. then they decide it was 108 yards. takes it to the house. and that just sends -- it looked like a boxer. it looked like in a boxing match when a fighter just finally gets knocked out. and then what happened? he gets the power going out in the stadium. who could have seen this happening at the superdome. >> twitter and facebook were
lighting up with light-filled jokes in new orleans. but it did change the momentum. >> there were like 350,000 tweets when the power went out. the lights still out. john harbaugh's lit because he can't figure out what's going on. the 49ers have been in this situation before. they come out after the power outage, they look like a completely different team. >> that's right. they found the lights. >> they did. they get back in this game, get themselves an opportunity late. a fourth down and goal from the 5 yard line. and the 49ers have their opportunity here. they're going to say that this is holding or this is pass interference. at the end of the day it's a good non-call. there's contact. the ball's overthrown. still, my biggest bone of contention was jim harbaugh. you have to call time out before that fourth down play. you have one time out left. you've got a quarterback who started ten games in this league. call time out. >> he blew one earlier. >> and they blew earlier. you've got to call time out before that game. still, joe flacco, your super bowl mvp, it's going to be well deserved. >> big contract coming his way. >> six years, 120 million. >> nice call with those ravens. we'll be back with more after this. don't go far.
